So Proud

Growing up, it would be an understatement to say that my little sister Jessica and I did not get along. Our parents got married when I was about 9 and she was about 4, and I thought she was a brat. And I don't think she had a much higher opinion of me!
As we got older, things slowly improved, especially after I went off to college. At that point we at least got along.
And now that we are adults, I think it is safe to say that we are friends. I had the honor of photographing her engagement, wedding, and the birth of her baby Laynie. And posted below are a few shots that I grabbed for their Christmas cards (yes, I know, I am a bit late in posting these!). Little Laynie cracked me up: she is just a tad on the serious side. We could not get her to smile for a single shot! Scott and Jessica claim that she does sometimes, though.
But really I just want to say to Jessica: I am so proud of you! I am proud of the beautiful woman, wife, and mother that you are. Even though things aren't always easy, you have handled everything with grace and wisdom. Dad would be so proud. I love you!
